Volvo introduces hydraulic breakers for utility machines

Now available in EMEA and coming to APAC in 2013, Volvo Construction Equipment’s new series of hydraulic breakers for compact equipment are durable enough for a wide range of applications and provide consistent impact frequency and power for greater productivity.

Able to penetrate a variety of materials and built to withstand harsh conditions and the toughest construction jobs, the six breakers in Volvo Construction Equipment’s (Volvo CE) HB02 to HB08 series perfectly complement Volvo’s high-performing backhoe loaders, skid-steer loaders and compact excavators weighing under 10 tons. 

Perfect harmony

Ranging in operating weight from 129 (114) kg to 577 (510) kg, Volvo HB02 to HB08 breakers are well-matched to Volvo machines and optimized to their specific weights and hydraulic technology. Tailored to Volvo quick couplers, the HB-Series makes attachment changes quick, simple and safe, allowing operators to switch between applications with the minimum effort.

For even more flexibility and increased productivity with the HB08 breaker, the operator can adapt frequency to suit the application using dual-speed control. Anti-blank firing prevents the HB07 from continuing to strike once material has been completely penetrated.

The new hydraulic breakers can be purchased in a comprehensive all-in-one package — which includes hydraulic hoses, hydraulic quick couplings (in EMEA), breaker bracket and breaker tools — so that they can go to work right away, no matter whether they’re being attached to new machines or integrated into an existing fleet. 

Like all Volvo attachments, these breakers are backed by Volvo CE’s extensive service network, providing the peace of mind that comes with an extensive, worldwide infrastructure of technicians, workshops and dealers.

The HB02-HB08 breakers will be selectively available in Region EMEA, India, Southeast Asia and Oceania.
